Outstanding reflection questions here. Reflection journaling with Reflection App has been one of the most powerful habits I’ve ever built. twitter.com/gregisenberg/s…
I found this interesting book today. I’ve never felt at home with formulaic therapeutic techniques. Maybe this book can help me blend my therapeutic approach with an eastern mindset, something that feels much more natural to me.
Thanks to those who reached out to check on me. I tend to deal with existential dread when I feel I'm going through the motions and not seeing the bigger picture. I feel called to go back into working with youth and families, so I'm going to pour my energy into that for a while.
Hey everyone, I've been away from Twitter for a while. I may return, but I realized after some soul-searching that Twitter doesn't feel like a place where I can be my authentic self anymore. I'm back working in the mental health field and focusing on in-person connection.
7 days later, this little guy is home from the vet. What a stressful, scary week he’s had. You don’t know what you’ll do for your animals when you first bring them home. But I’m more than willing to get him the care he needs to repay him for all the love he’s given me.
Emergency health situations with pets are awful. I never thought I would be a cat guy, but my cats are part of my family. Hate to see them suffer.
When you feel small, you are. But so is everyone else. We are all small, together. And that’s a big thing.

Being in nature is one of the best ways I know to be happy. Wake up, have a plan, and stick to it. Too much freedom in life can be crippling. A simple hike forces you into the present moment.
It’s not about how smart you are. It’s about how you treat other people.

Life is not an endless parade it is a trumpet player searching for a song and you are the music

What would you try if it didn't have to be perfect? What would you do if you saw mistakes as the insights that they are?
The western mindset is a huge driver of anxiety. The need to categorize and optimize everything is not natural. Humans need creativity. They need to remember how to just be in the world, to just be with others.

I really enjoyed this. I think I’m going to make this a weekly thing on my mental health poetry account. Will you join me? instagram.com/mental.health.…
How about a haiku? If you’re in the mood, reply with a haiku of your own.

Some people will try to bring you down. But that is about them. Not you. Only you know what you’ve been through, and only you can determine what that means.

Society wants perfection. But progress tends to come from failures and flaws.

Share something. Create anything. Nothing good can happen if you don’t put yourself out there. It’s scary, but what’s scarier is never giving yourself the chance to fly.

Trying something new over at Instagram. If you like poetry and mental health, I think you're really going to like my daily posts.

You don’t have to love yourself every moment of every day. You just have to notice what’s going on and keep going. Noticing followed by forward movement is how all progress is made.

Thanks for all the support so far!
@itsKelspiration Here's the line from the Holstee Manifesto that I was referring to when I went on this tangent: "If you're looking for the love of your life; stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love." And the whole Manifesto:

Happiness isn’t an end state. It’s losing yourself in the moment. It’s forgetting that you’re pursuing happiness at all.

You can choose to be everything to everyone. Or you can choose yourself.
Who else loves poetry that touches on mental health issues??
Snap out of it They say But it’s not that simple And why don’t they say Snap into it? Why don’t they try To snap themselves Out of the state they’re in? Wouldn’t that be equally powerful Wouldn’t that bridge the divide? Wouldn’t that snap the expansive distance between us?

If you take the time to get to know another person’s story, you will be less likely to judge them and more likely to have a friend. It’s absolutely one of the best decisions you can make.

To be lost is to be vulnerable. It's to admit that you don't know everything. But the beauty is this: we NEVER know everything. And it's the not knowing that keeps us searching. And it's the searching that is the source of meaning.

Day by day, you find your way. It won’t always feel like progress. You wont always be happy with yourself. But each day is a chance to move forward. Never lose sight of who you are.
